Saigoneer Podcast: Central Vietnam Floods; Sustainable Fashion Designer Lê Ngọc Hà Thu

Our latest episode is available now!

On this week's show, we look (1:11) at the ongoing historic flooding in central Vietnam, where five provinces have been hit by multiple tropical storms in recent weeks and have sustained massive damage and tragic loss of life. What could be done to prevent such calamity in the future, and what sort of charity and relief efforts are currently underway?

Our interview guest (23:10) is Lê Ngọc Hà Thu, a Hanoi-based fashion designer who won the menswear category at the Redress Design Award 2020, a competition aimed at promoting sustainable clothing production and design. Thu talked about her background in design, how to be an environmentally conscious clothing consumer, and what she hopes to achieve in the future.

As always, we end with Bánh Mì Banter (47:20).
